Regarding War: image/text

Posted on June 18, 2009 by in Events, Photography, Trans-Scriptions

Panel_Regarding_War‘Regarding War: image/text’ was one of the Centre’s earlier events that relates most closely to our current ‘Writing for Liberty’ series.

This Trans-Scriptions event took place on June 18th 2009 and brought together a photographer, a filmmaker, a contemporary writer and a literary critic to discuss the themes of conflict, displacement and alienation in the context of the Centre’s Regarding War project. The day had as its starting point the Centre’s online Regarding War exhibition, which contains images by photographer Richard Hanson and textual pieces written in response to those images by novelist Fadia Faqir. The conference included an exhibition of Richard Hanson’s photographs, a creative writing workshop run by Graham Mort and the work of two filmmakers who are exploring similar themes, Dictynna Hood and Sami Khan.
